David Foster Wallace hung himself 10 years ago, on September 12 2008. I remember when I read the news about it. I was shocked. It was during a bloggers meeting in Italy, BlogFest, in Riva del Garda. In my blog (not active anymore) I wrote a lot about DFW. I was also a subscriber and contributor in wallace-l, the mailing list of Wallace's fans.
I wrote already on Steem about DFW so I don't want to repeat what I said. Wallace died for the deep depression he fighted all his life. In 2008 he tried to change the drugs he was taking for many years and that brought him back to the disease.
Italians was and are particularly enamoured of the author of "Infinite Jest". Today and in the last days there are many articles on italian magazines about him. Forbes Italia dedicates a long article to the memory of DFW, written by my friend Alessandro Raveggi.
I can just publish again the portrait I dedicated to that amazing writer, one of the greatest I have ever read.
